Sharing MS-Win directories with Linux


Hi.

Working with MS-Win 2000, I want to share a directory with other Linux boxes. I know how to share Linux directories with MS-Windows, but not the opposite.

Which program must I install?

suse 9.1 has no issues seeing and having full read write premissions to my dad's win2000 PC. i didn't even do any configureation to my linux box. granted when i want to see the files i am prompted with a login screen.

i use it to check for spyware or other potential problems my brother may be causeing.

it works rather well. i belive most distributions have it.

There are quite a few clients from the command line smbclient to guis like konqueror and LinNeighborhood, you can even set up a web based browser. There is a list here:

Sharing MS-Win Directories

I recently setup a samba server at my place of business to act as a file server. A great resource for learning about the server would be a book called using samba. The book is available for free right off of samba's website. In case you have trouble finding it, here is the URL: http://us4.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html

Again, the book was a great help to me when trying to share MS-WIN files to linux or a Linux FS to MS-Windows
